The Wild Flower Society offers a range of grants to support botanical training and plant conservation.

We do NOT offer grants for wild flower meadow development or meadow seeds.

In 2023 we awarded grants of £3650 to ten wildlife trusts for botanical training, £1750 for wild flower activities for children and young people, and made grants of £1750 to research projects. Details of 2023 grant recipients are here.
